[SOLVED] screen goes black after installing gnome or kde

I am using virtualbox for installing arch.
The problem is quite weird. First I installed arch (without gui)  and then installed xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-server-utils.xorg-twm xorg-xclock xterm

Then I installed virtualbox-guest-utils. Manually loaded the modules (modprobe -a vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo) and created a virtualbox.conf in /etc/modules-load.d with these line:

vboxguest
vboxsf
vboxvideo

Then I started X using "startx" command, every thing works fine. Xterm is working fine.

Then I installed gnome and enabled gdm (systemctl enable gdm.service) , when i rebooted the screen goes black, there is nothing on the screen.
I also tried to install kde and upgraded all the packages but nothing worked.
Here is my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file :

Re: [SOLVED] screen goes black after installing gnome or kde

Did you install any ttf fonts? Try installing dejavu. I only mention this because I remember not having this can cause weird errors with KDE - no idea if gnome is the same.

Please use [code ] [/code ] tags.

Re: [SOLVED] screen goes black after installing gnome or kde

Sorry for log part, I'm new to forums.

Yes I've installed ttf, no success.
Actually ttf fonts are installed along with gnome & gnome-extra.

Re: [SOLVED] screen goes black after installing gnome or kde

Okay finally I decided to make new installation (from making of new virtual disk), but this time in VmPlayer.
Followed the same process and made it...
Everything is working fine (actually got some issues with using custom scripts, will be posting of it in new forum), but the good thing is that I can see a working gui finally.
Also I would like to mention that Gnome runs slow than KDE (actually very much slow in Virtual environment on new hardware), so I shifted to KDE.
